Why Im Interested • I am interested in this career because it is something I have been doing ever since I was very young. I have always loved to draw, loved to design and make up characters and I’ve been taking art class ever since grade 8. This job appeals to me because I like to hear ideas of people and what they’re looking for and then take that into something of my own. This fits my personality and interests, and strengths because art is everything I love most and I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my future doing what I love to do all the time and getting paid for that.
